"Space opera", once a derisive term for cheap pulp adventure, has come to mean something more in modern SF: compelling adventure stories told against a broad canvas, and written to the highest level of skill. Indeed, it can be argued that the "new space opera" is one of the defining streams of modern SF.   World Fantasy Award-winning anthologists David G. Hartwell and Kathryn Cramer have compiled a definitive overview of this subgenre, both as it was in the days of the pulp magazines, and as it has become since. Included are major works from genre progenitors like Jack Williamson and Leigh Brackett, stylish mid-century voices like Cordwainer Smith and Samuel R. Delany, popular favorites like David Drake, Lois McMaster Bujold, and Ursula K. Le Guin, and modern-day pioneers such as Iain M. Banks, Steven Baxter, Scott Westerfeld, and Charles Stross.… (lisätietoja)

"The Prince of Space," by Jack Williamson (1931): 8
- so, yes, I don't really know how to grade this, but it seems good enough, especially if I'm judging the context in place of the genre of the time of its creation. Short synopsis: Buck Rogers, space adventure, piracy, mars invasion, somebody or at the end sucking human blood, and quite a bit of interesting science dealing with evolution and natural selection that I didn't expect from something out of this period. As with most of these, the gender presuppositions and fairly broad psychological introspections are weak, even though they're given a sort of primacy in the story itself, counterintuitively. What does work here, however, is exactly what doesn't work in the Martian odyssey story by Weinbaum. To that end, the description of the otherness of the aliens is effective and mildly terrifying, and the infusion of technology into the narrative, as it served as a factor in the direction of the completion was convincing in a swashbuckling sort of way. Idea: take every pre-WWII space opera story and manually replace all the "space" stuff with parallel nautical themes.

Huge anthology (941 pages) of mostly excellent stories, very few of which I had actually read before (Lois McMaster Bujold's "Weatherman", Peter F. Hamilton's "Escape Route" and Allen Steele's "The Death of Captain Future" - all great stories), tracing the space opera sub-genre through the decades. It's not always my favourite mode (and I found myself choking at short stories by a couple of writers whose longer works I have also bounced off) but the selection is generally good. In particular I appreciated the early stories from Edmond Hamilton, Jack Williamon, Clive Jackson and especially Leigh Brackett ("Enchantress of Venus") - shamefully, I am not sure that I had read anything at all by her previously, but I must repair that omission. The longest story is "The Survivor" by Donald Kingsbury, set in the Man-Kzin wars cycle originated by Larry Niven, a gruesome and disturbing though well-written tale. In general this is well worth looking out for. ( )

I came to this book with a fairly clear definition in my own mind as to what space opera is: a science fiction adventure story with a healthy dash of escapism, typically built around swashbuckling and/or western tropes, with the underlying assurance that in the end good will triumph over evil. For me space opera isn’t supposed to make any pretense of a following the laws of physics, economics, or evolutionary biology. The original Star Wars trilogy and the Miles Vorkosigan books (both of which I love dearly), are paradigms of space opera in my eyes.

After reading this book (which, at 941 pages, took me about two months to get through), I’m still not entirely sure that I understand what David Hartwell and Kathryn Cramer think Space Opera is. Anything scifi and “epic,” as far as I can tell, which seems a useless and trivial definition to me.

All but five of the 32 included stories were new to me, and I certainly found a few authors whose work I will further investigate. Coming to a subgenre survey anthology like this one expects to like some of the stories, and not be crazy about others, and that was indeed my experience here. Of the stories that were new to me, my favorites were “Empire Star” by Samuel R. Delany, “Ring Rats” by R Garcia y Robertson, “Enchantress of Venus” by Leigh Brackett, “Grist” by Tony Daniel and the delicious parody “Space Opera” by Michael Kandel. On the other end of the spectrum, I gave 3s and 4s (out of 10) to “The Swordsmen of Varnis” by Clive Jackson, “The Great Game” by Stephen Baxter, “Lost Sorceress of the Silent Citadel” by Michael Moorcock, “Aurora in Four Voices” by Catherine Asaro, “The Star Steelers” by Edmond Hamilton, and “Fool’s Errand” by Sarah Zettel.

The introductory materials were well done. ( )

I was very excited to receive this book, as Tor is an outstanding publisher, Hartwell an excellent editor, and space opera perhaps my favorite genre in all forms of literatrure. The fundamental problem with this book , alas, is that space opera, by definition, is expansive. Short form space opera is like short form opera: a sort of YouTube version of the good stuff.
